A destination wedding at the Al Cielo hotel in the Riviera Maya, a perfect day to celebrate the love of long-time couple Reyna and McKenzie. These gorgeous lovers had a “paperwork only” civil marriage before Navy man McKenzie deployed last year, but wanted to share a special day with their closest family and friends and have a “real” wedding in paradise. The intimate boutique hotel Al Cielo sits on one of the prettiest beaches in the Riviera Maya called “Xpu Ha”, the most amazing backdrop for a destination wedding! The cozy restaurant under a soaring palapa sets a lovely scene for a reception, with delicious food and stunning ocean views.
When we asked Reyna why they chose Del Sol Photography, here is what she had to say:
Del Sol captures feelings and moments so intensely that you only focus on the people in the photo… I love the intimacy. The sexiness, bond, and beauty that is captured by Del Sol. It is hard to photograph people and give direction so they look natural. All of Del Sol’s photos look natural and allow couples to be themselves which creates a masterpiece to treasure forever.
It was a real pleasure to be a part of Reyna and McKenzie’s wedding day, genuinely nice people that were a joy to be around. Photographer Melissa captured the emotions of the day and the passion that flows between the newlyweds, be sure to see the whole slideshow! Thank you so much to the couple for allowing us to be a part of this special occasion, we wish you both all the best for a long, happy and healthy married life together!
We were thrilled to have a chance to spend a day with Reyna and McKenzie for a spectacular trash the dress shoot too, photos coming soon!
